Senate President and a Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) presidential aspirant, Bukola Saraki, has confirmed that he was okay with the choice of Port Harcourt, Rivers State, as venue for the party’s national convention.

Saraki spoke after the party’s 83rd National Executive Committee (NEC) meeting in Abuja on Friday.

“We all agreed to hold it in Port Harcourt.

“Some of the issues that we are having before, which were reported in papers, we discussed that. Everybody decided that we should stay with the party.


“Where tempers flared, people apologised and everyone felt, yes there was a commitment to assure everybody that there will be free and fair primaries,” Saraki said.

Some aspirants had complained that the convention could be hijacked by Rivers State governor, Nyesom Wike.

But the party hierarchy had insisted the convention would go on at the venue, saying the choice was a “unanimous decision.”
